Introduced in 1952, Harley’s Model K Sport and Sport Solo motorcycles were an all-new design. They featured styling and influence that was part 125 Model S, part W 45 Sidevalve and part FL 61 OHV Big Twin, with other innovations incorporated. The Model K was an exciting and different motorcycle. It represented the most technologically advanced and modern motorcycle that Harley Davidson had produced to date. Based on the proven 45 Side Valve formula from 1929, the engine was a fresh design with larger cams, carburetor, and higher compression than the W. The engine and transmission now shared the same engine cases.

The 1956 Ks were more refined than ever, and to receive extra recognition the 1956 K Models carried a special decal in color carrying the `KHK` letters on a Shield with crossed Checkered Flags at the top, placed on the sides of the oil tank and tool box. "Happy and proud indeed will be the owners who ride these special KHKs in 1956" sayeth The Factory.

The engine starts and runs well with good compression. It shifts well through the gears via an good clutch. Brakes and suspension work well. As many were, this particular bike has been made street-legal with the addition of a small headlight and taillight.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a rare Harley model in superb original condition.
